    Thanks for this. I am very fussy about recorder/preamp hiss (that's why I got a MixPre), I am running line-in on the R09HR between 30-40 (that = 10-15 on the R09 classic). I have never had any issues with noise from the Edirols (R09 and R09HR) with the MixPre out the front. BTW: Check the gain on the MixPre, that's about the maximum I ever need to use. So I am not lacking gain.

    Thanks for the suggestions tho.

    The main advantage of the XLR output over the tapeout is that it allows turning down gain on the noisy Edirol to 10 - meaning no gain added there - and use the low-noise signal of the preamp instead. Ever since I got the FP24 I've been doing this

    Yes tape out (line level) from the MixPre. As I am using it with an R09HR (and previously R09) I have no choice. The tape out is -56 dB while the XLRs are -66 dB (10 dB difference). That said, I have never run more than 50-60% gain on the MixPre while feeding an Edirol R09/HR model. More gain that I can use.
